Tonya here, I am a wife and mother of 4 wonderful boys. Over the years I have allowed myself to get to a point where its time to turn things around. I have tried to diet in the past, but like most things if you are not ready for a change it never works..........and of course it did not work for me. Today is a new day, and I know this time I want it, and want it BAD!

Last year I made that choice, I busted my tail and by May I had dropped 35 pounds. I accomplished the early goals quickly, and I enjoyed the rewards that came with that loss. In the end I ended up slacking off on exercise, and tracking my calories. By July I was no longer eating healthy, and by August I was no longer logging into Sparkpeople even in January one year later I have gained back 15 of those hard lost pounds.

But today is a new day, and today is the start of Round 2. I know where I made my mistakes last year, and I know I will have to work hard to not find myself in that same rut I entered then.

Today is another new day, and I plan on working hard to find out who I am, and where I want to be. I can not and will not promise that I will not slip up, but I promise to never give up again!

Today is the first day of forever................

    The Virgo girl is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes, so the child grows up in a family with a critical parent, so she learns to be critical especially of herself. The father is a good man but rather passive so the shy little Virgo child goes inward for quiet as she doesn't like over-stimulation. She learns to be frugal as money has always been a worry in the home. She doesn't want to be criticized so she works hard to always be ready so she isn't found unprepared. This leads to a lot of stress for the Highly Sensitive Person. Virgo needs alone time and rest. Virgo works well behind the scene helping others look good
    Virgo gets along with Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn, taurus and Scorpio, but when a relationship goes bad she will walk out and not look back as she is very capable of living on her own. She often finds a man who is the "bad boy" so she can try to improve or change him, but that doesn't work since he finds her a "nag". She is better off staying with intellectual men who want to be a success and finding one she can help get to the top.
    Weight can be an issue for her as she can turn to sweets for comfort, but her sign rules the Sixth House of Health, so she makes a good nurse caring for others. She LOVES to show others the right way to live, so she can be a health coach.
    The symbol for Virgo is the Virgin, denoting the puritanical demeanor usually common to those of this sign.
    In Virgo the Sun is orderly and thoughtful. With the Sun in Virgo you are predisposed to be hardworking, conscientious, and well-organized. Modest, discriminating and thorough, everything you do, you do well. Practical and down to earth, you are a diligent worker with a competent, discriminating intellect. You are highly analytical and exacting, especially adapted to handling projects with painstaking perfection. Thus, you are fond of good workmanship and the utmost in quality. You are dependable because your approach is always one based on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the problem.
    You give much attention to detail, but you can carry this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering. Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect, often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too negative and picky sometimes.

    Modest and unassuming, you are usually content to live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and "behind the scenes" support activity.

    You have a serious attitude toward refining your mind and acquiring knowledge. With your highly varied interests, you can gain a remarkable amount of data about different subjects. You instinctively know that you must grasp all parts before you can fully understand the whole. Systematizing and detail organization are your strengths. You are idealistic, but always practical and reasonable. You're not likely to make general statements based on too few facts.
    You may be somewhat health conscious, for you have an instinctive sense of balance in diet. You're very sensible in taking care of your health, and for that matter, the health of others. Often, the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic about cleanliness. You're likely to be susceptible to stress related problems because you do tend to worry too much.
